It‘s Memories That I‘m Stealing

Glitter Top and Skirt, Sn@tch shirt, Glamistry Shoes, Lelutka and Slink Mesh Body/Head and Glam Affair skin

It’s such a sad old feeling
the fields are soft and green
it’s memories that I’m stealing
but you’re innocent when you dream
when you dream
you’re innocent when you dream

Glitter Top and Skirt, Sn@tch shirt, Glamistry Shoes, Lelutka and Slink Mesh Body/Head and Glam Affair skin

 

Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week wraps up today, though the shops will remain open for the month. Today I am wearing a top and skirt by Glitter called Lauren. It comes with a HUD that allows you to pick six texture options for the top and the skirt. I went for the solid black top and the black skirt with a pinstripe inset. The top is very short and just barely covers the nipples, leaving the underside of the breasts bare. That’s not my preference, so I added a bodysuit from Sn@tch, using their applier for the Slink Physique so I did not have to worry about the Glitter top fitting over the Sn@tch top. Besides, I think the teal and black lace adds a nice touch.  Continue reading

If you love shoes, you always get a jackpot on the 21st

150520_002

Penumbra Fashion Week continues for just a few more days. I decided to feature another dress from A la Folie. This one is Gloria and I chose it for a few reasons. The sunny color is a delight and a wonderful contrast to the cloudy skies. I also love pencil skirt and the Sixties styling. It makes me think of Oscar de la Renta from that era. Then, it is the 21st, which means 21 Shoe, which means the gorgeous shoes that are after the cut are for sale for this day only, and this dress and those shoes seem made for each other.

I have not been to Roche for some time. I dropped in to visit and confirm that it is still one of the loveliest sims on the grid. Continue reading

Zanze at Penumbra Fashion Week

The skirt and top from Zanze for Spring Summer Fashion Week is loose, airy and oh so summery.

 

 

Zanze has a large collection of fabulous outfits for Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week. My favorite is this Strathmere skirt and top.  I love the loose, breezy easiness and the bold, bright colors.

The Light Wraps You in its Mortal Flame

150516_003

Pablo Neruda’s Poema 2 came to mind today and I wanted to share it. Here is the complete poem in English.

En su llama mortal la luz te envuelve.
Absorta, pálida doliente, así situada
contra las viejas hélices del crepúsculo
que en torno a ti da vueltas.

The light wraps you in its mortal flame.
Abstracted pale mourner, standing that way
against the old propellers of the twilight
that revolves around you.

Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week

150513_009

Sonatta Morales has five special releases for Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week which opens on May 16th. I always look forward to Fashion Week. There are always more innovative and avant garde releases for Fashion Week, as though the event challenges the designers to do their best work of the season. Here is the official schedule for Fashion Week. There are 16 fashion shows coming up – a great week full of fashion.

Last year Whimsy Winx and Sasy Scarborough released on of their collaborations called Papier de Mode. It came with two pose sets, one with these pieces of paper with different bits of text and one blank. For fun, I added the Fashion Week logo and a few  words to the prop. I love it when a prop can be modified.

Join Hands For Nepal

150512_006

Perhaps because Second Life® is very much an intentional community, a self-selected universe of seekers, its people seem to have internalized John Donne’s extraordinary claim “No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main…” On April 25th, a bell tolled in Nepal. An earthquake and its aftershocks killed nearly 2000 people and fractured the infrastructure of the country. Because Second Life’s residents are “involved in mankind”, they responded quickly. Today a fundraiser opened to raise money to help feed the people of Nepal though the UN’s World Food Program.  With another aftershock injuring over two thousand people just last night, the urgency of their need is compelling.

Join Hands, a new group formed to leverage the efforts of the SL community to respond to real world needs has organized the Fashion For Food (Join Hands for Nepal) event. There are many details about the event in Inara Pey’s great blog post complete with pictures from the event venue. With a bold and effective choice, the organizers chose to have the sim build reflect the damage of an earthquake and Inara Pey has several great picture of the venue.

Mami Jewell of Azul is one of those creators who often steps up to offer items to help. For Fashion for Food, she has released three different items. One is the short color block mini that is not in her usual formal style. I was happy to see it as it was perfect for DJ’ing last night. The black and teal combination and simple geometry inspired me to wear the lovely white, mint and yellow geometric nail polish from Nylon Outfitters for this month’s Collabor88 – and that led me to run with yellow for my accessories including these great shoes I got at the 21 Shoe event. I suppose it is cruel to show them since they were available for one day only – on the 21st. But I hope that inspires you to mark that date and remind yourself to check out the event. Participating stores offer two-for-one shoe exclusives for that day, but they are not available after the event.

Some big yellow earrings from Glam Affair and a lovely hair style from Exile help complete my outfit. This lovely skin from Glam Affair for Collabor88.

The World Food Program has three main goals under its Nepal earthquake response:
deliver food to survivors and those who need it most,
provide emergency operation assistance on a massive scale, and
help the humanitarian aid community with relief hub services.

Not everyone wants to contribute through events and would rather give their support directly in their first life. You can donate directly to the World Food Program Nepal relief here.

We pass each other by ’cause we don’t know what to say

Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice has a gorgeous zip dress called Damie at Uber this month. It comes in 10 color combinations, all with gold zippers and a gold belt. She also has a coordinating clutch on sale at Uber, but I left it in the car while i took a walk on the beach. :)

I remembered LiValle’s gorgeous Classico zipper shoes and dug out a pair to wear with the dress. Zippers R Us.

Pretty In Punk

150501_001

There are a few more shopping days left of the Pretty In Punk round of Collabor88 and you won’t want to miss it. Look at this gorgeous dress from ISON for this round. It comes in several solid colors and well as two plaids and these gorgeous stripes. I love ISON’s contemporary style, minimalist and fashion forward with just a few details that reflect the designer’s discipline. You will never hear Nina say “it’s over-designed” about anything from ISON because the designer in control.
